Adventist Youth Society (AYS)

The future of any nation is its youth. Likewise, the future of the church is its youth. The Seventh-day Adventist church considers its youth its greatest asset. The church invests her time and her means to secure those assets. Like a mother, she nurtures her children and jealously guards their footsteps as they journey to maturity. She provides wholesome activities for their spiritual, intellectual, social and recreational development.

In the early days of the church, the Missionary Volunteer department was one of the strongest departments in the church. This was due in part to the large number of youth that came into the church in 1947 and succeeding years, and also in part to the influence of Brother Jeraud Nibbs, himself a youth, who introduced the others to the wonderful world of missionary volunteering.

The youth department in those days was called the MV department. Its functions included conducting the Sabbath afternoon young people's religious service called MV meeting.

As the church moved into decades of the nineteen-seventies and beyond, the youth who align with her find themselves in a new era of Youth Ministry. The terms MV is today known as the Adventist Youth Society.
